The Superior Court of Orange County offers several options to assist the public in completing court forms:
- State Judicial Council Approved Forms: All statewide approved forms are available for Adoptions, Civil, Conservatorships, Criminal, Guardianships, Family Law, Juvenile, Name Change, Probate, Small Claims, and Traffic.
- Locally Approved Forms: In addition to forms approved by the State Judicial Council, the Superior Court of Orange County has approved a variety of forms, some of which are fillable, giving you a larger selection of forms to assist you. Some commonly used state and local forms have also been grouped together in "packets" with instruction sheets.
- SmartForms: New interactive electronic forms make it easier and more efficient to complete forms. Forms may be filed online or in person. A limited number of SmartForms are currently available, with plans to add more in the near future.
- I-CAN!™: Allows you to easily enter information about your case by responding to simple, user-friendly questions, from which properly formatted forms can be printed.
The court's Self-Help Centers and website can provide procedural assistance with form selection and completion.
